Frozen sing-along proved a hit for Brechin Community Cinema

Brechin Community Cinema’s December screening passed all expectations - with the Frozen sing-along drawing a large audience.

Graham Donald, chair of the group who run the cinema, said: “Over 160 adults and dressed up children were entertained and encouraged by Elsa, Anna and Olaf throughout to join in with the singing. On occasions the singing was accompanied by the site of snow falling inside the hall, all adding up to a fantastic experience.

“All the princesses and princes joined in with the singing and then left with a smile on their faces as they were seen off by Elsa, Anna and Olaf with a goody bag.”

The Disney hit was followed by Pan and James Bond, both of which recorded a strong turnout.

The cinema has changed the date of its January screening to Sunday, January 17. The films set to be shown include Disney Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur at 1pm, followed by one of the most highly-anticipated film releases - Star Wars - The Force Awakens - at 4pm. The final film in January has a more local feel - with the screening of Sunset Song at 7pm. The film is based on the book by Grassic Gibbon. Graham added: “To supplement the film we are arranging for a speaker from the Grassic Gibbon Centre to give a five minute presentation on the author and the book itself.”

He also outlined the romantic touches planned for the Valentine’s Day screening. He said: “Our regular audience will know that they were asked to select a film with Breakfast at Tiffany’s winning. We are planning to have candle lit tables with flowers and nibbles down stairs with a bring your own bottle option to have whilst watching the movie. We will have some live music playing prior to the film starting to entertain those have a table”

Ticket prices and sales points will be announced later.
